Thanksgiving in Marineland, Florida

23 November 2017 | Marineland, Florida
Rainy, cool, windy
On Tuesday, after spending one evening on the mooring ball at the St. Augustine Municipal Marina, we moved south a couple of hours and went into the Marineland Marina. While here, we were able to do our morning exercises and catch up on laundry. We dug out the bikes and biked 5 ½ miles to the grocery store to buy our food for Thanksgiving day dinner. The ride to the grocery store was really pleasant. The trail was all concrete with the ocean on one side and the A1 highway on the other side. It also juts in and out of shaded park areas. The 5 1/2 miles coming back was not so pleasant. We found ourselves pedaling against a 15 knot head wind not to mention the $100.00 worth of groceries on our backs. Needless to say, we made it back a little sore in the buttocks. After we recovered from our bike ride we walked across the highway to Marineland Park. The marina offered us free admission passes. We chose to pay an extra $20.00 for a Behind the Seas tour. It was a guided tour of the facility to learn about Marineland’s unique 75-year history. During the tour we learned a lot about the park and its's dolphins. In addition, we learned about the research that takes place on a daily basis and viewed various species of coral, fish and other sea creatures. It was really fascinating. Today, I made a traditional Thanksgiving dinner on Scheherazade. Happy Thanksgiving to our family and friends.
